Would like to compare notes with others researching the O'Halloran and Halloran surnames in Co. Clare, especially the Feakle and Scariff areas, and especially the name John O'Halloran. I live in Dublin and have several records from the registry office pertaining to O'Hallorans back to 1864. Hope we can connect.

Re O'Halloran, Clare County. My great-grandmother was Mary Halloran, Halloran or Hallorann. She was born in Co. Clare, 10 Dec 1845. Probably in Ogonelle, Scariff or a place called Killowa. She died 24 Dec 1935. She had one sister. Her father's name was Martin O'Holloran and her mother's name was Mary Hopkins O'Holloran. Hope there is a connection with your O'Halloran.

My gg-grandmother was a Margaret O'Halloran. She married a Thomas Wall. There 3 sons James, Thomas and Denis were all born in Co Clare and emigrated to Queensland in 1852. I'm not sure of the names of Margaret's parents.

Is there a possible connection?


The Canny's of Ballycasey

Surnames: Canny
I am a descendant of the Canny family of Ballycasey, Co Clare. My records are fairly complete but can be rather flimsy in parts (researching from Australia is either very difficult or extraordinarily expensive if one wants to be precise!). Denis Joseph Canny (1840-1928) migrated to Australia in the 1880s and was my G-Grandfather; Matthew Canny(1810-1868) was my G-G-Grandfather; Denis Canny (1780-1850) my G-G-G-Grandfather; and John Canny (d 24 Dec 1784 at Ballycasey) was my G-G-G-G-Grandfather. John Canny married Mary Lyons (1747-1823) of Croom, Co Limerick on 5 Aug 1768.

That's as far back as my info goes, but I'd love to hear from anyone that can add to the story in any direction. Happy to share what I do have.

The Canny's occupied several grand houses in the general area of Ballycasey, including Clonmoney (near Hurler's Cross and now crumbling) and Deerpark (nearer to Sixmilebridge and derelict but still standing defiantly in a forgotten pasture).
